Dr. Phillip Snell – Solutions Sports and Spine, Inc.2019-10-01T11:54:23-08:00

Dr. Phillip Snell

Sometimes jokingly referred to as the “Disc Whisperer” :), Dr. Phillip Snell has a clinical chiropractic practice, Solutions Sports and Spine, Inc which resides in Evolution Healthcare and Fitness in Portland, OR. His practice is focused on rehab of lumbar disc herniation and sports injuries. He manages patients as diverse as world record holding athletes to average folks just wanting to remain active in their life. Dr. Snell’s practice is particularly suited to the aging former athlete who longs to return to higher levels of function and play. He leverages deep training in many rehab schools of thought with a heavy leaning toward the DNS work of Pavel Kolar from the Czech Republic, the work of Stuart McGill, the work of Gray Cook and a great deal of work in the use of kettlebells for training. Dr. Snell also utilizes a variety of manual methods  including Fascial Manipulation, myofascial trigger point therapy, positional release and neural dynamics. Along with Dr. Justin Dean, Dr. Snell co-created the neurocentric manual therapy technique known as Dermal Traction Method (DTM).

Beyond clinical practice, Dr. Snell maintains adjunct faculty status at University of Western States and lectures internationally on use of exercise interventions to help manage lumbar disc herniation, a process known as the FixYourOwnBack Method. That work was informed by his own disc injury and the subsequent combination of rehab therapies that he put together to manage this often incredibly painful condition. If you can’t make an appointment to come and see Dr. Snell in Portland, you can get the whole program online at FixYourOwnBack.com. You can also schedule a 60 minute teleconference with Dr. Snell at this link.
